thinkCHESS is happy to partner with Roberts Elementary School to provide students with the opportunity to learn the game of chess in a manner that develops Critical Thinking Skills™. Each week our coaches work with students to impart knowledge that ranges from the rules of the game, etiquette of play, understanding chess position, tactics, and strategical planning. Each lesson is divided into lecture and practice periods, with students exercising their new skills with their fellow classmates. We provide support beyond the classroom by allowing the students to access an online platform (chesskid.com) that lets them review key lessons, watch chess videos, play chess against the computer and classmates, and participate in tournaments. The platform has built in security measures to ensure the safety of the students and to limit any possible problems. Let’s play chess together
